A registered sex offender was convicted Monday for violating state law by working as a youth minister at a local church and taking children to a city recreation center.

Steven Lennard Johnson, 53, of Stewart Road pleaded guilty in Forsyth Superior Court to working with children and being in a place where children are present, both of which he is prohibited from doing because he is a sex offender. Johnson is married to the daughter of the church’s pastor, but the pastor said neither he nor his daughter knew about Johnson’s criminal background.
